Fundraising Tips

We encourage you to work with your friends, co-workers or employees to come up with new ideas for your fundraising event, something your group will get excited about. See below for a sampling of ideas. Also, remember to share your fundraising event with family, friends and co-workers on your social-media platforms of choice: Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Instagram, Pinterest and others.

  • Host a wine- or beer-tasting event at your favorite establishment. Sell tickets to attend to friends and co-workers. Hold a raffle at the event.

  • Host a dodge-ball or corn-hole tournament. Invite teams to register to participate in a fun day of activities and determine the winning group.

  • Hold a “jeans day” in your office. Staff members who donate a certain amount to EVMS, such as $5 or $10, can wear jeans to the office that day.

  • Host a dinner or luncheon for your friends and ask them to make a donation to EVMS.

  • Birthday wishes. Instead of presents, ask family and friends to donate to your designated program at EVMS.
